Karua's Latest Promise to Raila Over Mt Kenya Votes

As Kenya Kwanza head William Ruto looks forward to fire his will-be first presidential shot, one of the political parameters he is heavily betting on Mt Kenya factor. The said region has over 5.1 million votes and has time and again determined who wins the statehouse race and who doesn't.

According to the latest poll finding conducted and released by Trends and Insights for Africa (TIFA) research group, the region was classified as one of Samoei's key political bastions. Will the self-crowned chief hustler maintain his ratings to the very end? Oh well, not exactly.

Raila Odinga's choice to cast his lots on Martha Karua as his running mate has consequently complicated Ruto's matrixes in Mt Kenya. For the past four days, Narc-Kenya and her troupe have crisscrossed the region spreading pro-Raila gospel and owing to grand reception she received, it is evident that the future could be dark for Samoei who has hitherto enjoyed dominance in the region.

In one of her public discourses, Karua promised to make visits to the region from time to time to ensure that Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Coalition party leader scales the mountain and gets at least 90% of area votes, what does Karua's promise mean to Raila-Ruto?

To the veteran, Karua's spirited hunt for votes is a blessing and since the former has five regions in his political closest, having Mt Kenya will practically actualize his statehouse course but to Samoei who is heavily staking on Mt Kenya, losing it to his greatest competitor will be a big blow and this may literally cost him the crown.
